Workshop 5: Nanoelectronics & Bioelectronics

The advent of nanotechnology opens up unique opportunities for nanophotonic and nanoelectronic applications. On top of that, the miniaturization of the current electronic and photonic technology to nanoscale dimensions, enables the development of photonic devices and systems with futuristic capabilities in communications, bio-sensing and biomedical and IoT devices.

Moreover, bioelectronics based on nanosystems is a rapidly growing multidisciplinary field bringing together biology and electronics with nanomaterials and nanoscience and develops devices with enhanced sensitivity and biocompatibility. At the same time, lab-on-a-chip technology is an expanding field ranging from life sciences, diagnostics and healthcare applications to environmental monitoring biohazards detection products.

This workshop aims to serve as a forum for scientists, engineers and industrials from all the world where there will interact and access to the latest developments in photonics, nanoelectronics, printed electronics, bioelectronics and lab-on-chip systems and related sectors such as digital health medical systems, screening applications and distributed diagnostics.
